Love is Greater Than “Being Right” 1 Corinthians 13

I just spent an hour reading a couple of faith-based blogs and the comments posted in response. Ironically, I went there looking for encouragement and left with a heavy heart.

Simple formula from the New Testament: Love > Being Right.

“If I could speak all the languages of earth and of angels, but didn’t love others, I would only be a noisy gong or a clanging cymbal. If I had the gift of prophecy, and if I understood all of God’s secret plans and possessed all knowledge, and if I had such faith that I could move mountains, but didn’t love others, I would be nothing. If I gave everything I have to the poor and even sacrificed my body, I could boast about it; but if I didn’t love others, I would have gained nothing.” , NLT.

Love is Greater Than Being Right

The Peace of Christ to you today,

13:1 If I speak in the tongues of men and of angels, but have not love, I am a noisy gong or a clanging cymbal. And if I have prophetic powers, and understand all mysteries and all knowledge, and if I have all faith, so as to remove mountains, but have not love, I am nothing. If I give away all I have, and if I deliver up my body to be burned, but have not love, I gain nothing. (ESV)
